Blog Hop and Follow Friday 9/24/10

Book Blogger Hop
Hey bloggers and readers!
Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Crazy for Books
Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee's View

This weeks Blog Hop question:
When you write reviews, do you write them as you are reading or wait until you have read the entire book?

My answer: I wait until I have finished the book before I start writing my reviews. I do this because often times the overall theme of the book is a process that takes the entire book to understand, and is powerfully concluded near the end. My rating for a book is decided upon the story, plot, theme, character development etc. which is hard to ascertain simply by reading and reviewing page by page. In my opinion, it takes the whole book to make it be "reviewable".

This weeks FF question:
What is your high fashion book? (Best cover ever!)

My answer: On The Adoration of Jenna Fox [Hardcover] book. there is a butterfly. If you look closely to the butterfly, a part of its left wing is missing. I would say close to ten percent. I will not say anymore about the wing, but for those of you who have read this book I hope you understand the importance of this. It's not the beauty of the cover that I love, but rather the important relation to the story from the cover.

Hoppers, I will follow you back if you let me know that you follow me!

Thanks for stopping by my site! :)

I just got The Adoration of Jenna Fox, but it's in paperback. I think it has a girl with puzzle pieces or something... Now I'm curious about the butterfly! Guess I'll have to read that book soon (after I finish The Hunger Games, probably).

Have a great weekend!

I'm rather the same when writing reviews...I have to wait until I'm finished because I can't fully process it while I'm reading. At least I'm a bloody fast reader haha thank you for following my blog today!

I'm already following you :)

Hi, I am new to your blog from the Hop! I like your answer to the first question a lot; it does take reading the whole book to be "reviewable". Have a great weekend. :)
